Hello, Zac Efron. I should have seen the writing in the wall, but you have joined the likes of Channing Tatum and Shane West as unfortunate male souls sucked into film renditions of Nicholas Sparks. I guess I should extend the same welcome to Scott Hicks (Sunshine, Hearts in Atlantis) who will sit in the director’s chair as well. In their new film, The Lucky One, Efron plays a Marine who searches for an unknown woman he believes was his good luck charm in the war in Iraq. I’m pretty sure they fall in love. The Lucky One releases April 20, 2012.
